So, that trailer was awesome right? It had so many explosions I’d put money on the fact that it made Michael Bay jealous! Seeing as there was so much going on, Avalanche have kindly released a list of 10 new features shown in the gameplay trailer.
1. The Wingsuit
The Wingsuit will allow Rico to swoop across Medici at breakneck speeds, using the grapple hook to slingshot through caves and tunnels, as well as under bridges and down mountainsides.
The grapple hook has taken a big leap forwards since the last game, with one of the biggest features being the ability to tether up to 5 things together. There are so many opportunities for creative destruction whether it be creating car catapults or hanging a bus from a helicopter and using it as wrecking ball.
3. MASSIVE Explosions
Medici is a world that is packed with petrol stations, electrical substations and huge fuel tanks that are just asking to go “boom”, every explosion has the potential to trigger another which will create an epic chain of fiery destruction.
4. Cascading Destruction
JC3 has a new physics-based destruction system which means that everything breaks, crumbles and falls apart in real-time, according to your actions – nothing is pre-canned.
5. The “Reeled Hang”
Another new grapple technique which will allow Rico to adopt this unique position when hooking onto the underside of anything in the world, allowing him to unleash chaos from above, even when upside down.
6. Destructible Vegetation
Not even the plants and trees can avoid Rico’s wrath. Blowing trees to bits with rockets, smashing through fences and vineyards in buses…even the downforce of low flying helicopter rotors will flatten beautiful fields of lavender or sunflowers.
7. Monorail trains
Monorails are a completely new addition to the Just Cause vehicle mix, bringing with it a wealth of creative opportunities for those who like to take a walk on the wild side.
8. Serious Miniguns
There’s nothing “mini” about this bullet-spraying behemoth. When wielding this, Rico can carve through just about anything in his path, like a hot knife through butter.
9. Bridge Destruction
Shoot out the struts from below, or lay your unlimited C4 on the asphalt to blast huge holes through the road and send your pursuers crashing down to earth in your wake.
Rico can now walk freely across the top of all the vehicles found in Medici, from the wings of planes, the tops of monorail trains to the bonnets and boots of automobiles. This allows him even more freedom, running and grappling from one rooftop to another and performing crazier stunts than ever before.
I didn’t think that Just Cause could be more crazy than it was but this list just proves that Avalanche are throwing everything they can at it to make sure it’s the most bonkers experience possible. YouTube is going to have a field day when this comes out later this year.
